Rye Mayor Joe Sack is sick and tired and not going to take it any more… and so are a lot of Rye residents whose yards are being overrun with a deer population that continues to explode in the absence of no natural predators.
Westchester County bosses in White Plains, who were considering some control efforts (bow hunting) in the county owned Marshlands Conservancy, have backed off. Now Sack and the Mamaroneck mayor have written a letter, saying "we implore you to reconsider your decision and implement the program at Marshlands as soon as possible".
Here is the entire letter:
October 15, 2015
Hon. Kevin Plunkett
Deputy County Executive
County of Westchester
148 Martine Avenue
White Plains, NY 10601
Dear Mr. Plunkett,
Given that our communities are suffering from a significant deer over-population problem, given that the County is in the best position to assist us in controlling this problem, and given that the County had previously indicated that it would proceed with its deer culling program at the County-owned Marshlands property, we are extremely disappointed that the County has indicated that it will now not do so.
Based on the County's position, we will need to re-assess how we will address the problem without the County's help. However, we implore you to reconsider your decision and implement the program at Marshlands as soon as possible.
Joeseph Sack, Mayor of the City of Rye
Norm Rosenblum, Mayor of the Village of Mamaroneck
